Fall River Police used street cameras to follow the girl's path. According to police, the cameras also caught her getting into a dark Toyota Camry with another girl.

The Camry's license plate led police to a Mulberry Street home. At the home, police found two girls - one who was wearing leggings similar to the robber and one, now wearing the Patriots sweater, who had gotten into the Camry with her.

Police arrested both girls and charged them with armed robbery. Their names were not released.
